All that was missing for me was my Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique CD playing in the background. Nell Channing is on the run from an abusive husband. She fakes her death and runs off, finally landing on Three Sisters Island where she happens into a job at the bookstore cafe as chef. She decides to stay for a while after Mia, the bookstore's owner, shows Nell extreme kindness, not only giving her a job but providing her with a place to live. Zack Todd, the local sheriff, takes a liking to Nell and decides to get better acquainted with this woman who seemingly is hiding something. As Nell falls in love and makes a home for herself, the threat of her husband keeps her from truly establishing permanency. She eventually has to deal with it and does, but not before she ties herself and Zack into knots. Three Sisters Island also features a local legend, one that Nell fits into. In the days of the Salem witch trials, three true witches, fearing for their lives, created the island--it detached from the land and floated through the air to a new location. The loneliness of the island weakened the sisters, and each had a tragic story and end. To redeem their ancestors and break the cycle, descendants of the three sisters had to be on the island and break the pattern, or the island would fall into the sea. The witches were Air, Earth and Fire. Air's story involved her death at the hand of her husband; Nell is Air's descendant.
